LES MONSEIGNEURS

A HORTICULTURAL SOCIETY

Les Monseigneurs is the artistic practice of Victor Verhelst

(1997) and Thomas Renwart (1995). They merge graphic

design and textile design in an adventure where

print and thread continuously pollinate, resulting

in tapestries, printed matter and further

adaptions on different carriers. Their main

source of inexhaustible inspiration they find

in nature. Departing from analogue

researches such as drawings, pressed flowers,

scans and found materials. They translate this

into digital paintings that grow into woven images.

Craftsmanship and technology are an important aspect of their practice.
